‘Weird and wonderful stuff’ at Sudbury beer festival

The sound of popping wine bottle corks and ale-fuelled cheer will be heard next month in Sudbury at the annual beer, wine and cider festival.

A line up of more than 25 beers, 50 wines, a dozen ciders and some Champagne will be available to drinkers at the 12th festival, held at Sudbury’s Institute Club in Station Road.

“We’re pulling out all the stops for what promises to be a vintage year,” said club manager Neil Garnham.

“Alongside the wine, we’ve sampled the finest ales from across the country, with a real focus on seasonal beers and a wide choice of blonde, dark, red and amber brews. As for the ciders, we’ll have some genuinely weird and wonderful stuff to taste,” he added.

The festival takes place on June 13, 14 and 15 from 11am to 11pm. Admission is £3 for non-members.

This year’s festival will include live music and Paul Mackman, whose Sudbury-based marketing firm The Mackman Group is a sponsor, said: “This is a fabulous opportunity to sample some of the UK’s best beers and ciders and fine wines from around the world.

“Nothing could be better than enjoying the best of these in our beautiful town.”
